Park open

The Playground is now open to the public and so is the new Community Park. There will be new bins put around the green area but for the present time please use the bins supplied in the Play Ground. This is a public amenity area and there are rules which will be listed when RCD get signs up but we ask the Community to enjoy and respect this new park and understand that there are a few more jobs to get finished.
